Powerstax, the leading application-rich power solutions specialists, announces the appointment of a new Director of Sales, EMEA. Rob Hill is returning to the UK from the USA, where for the last six years he has held a number of senior posts in the power industry, to take up this new role.
Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax, comments; ”Powerstax has continued to grow its export business throughout the global downturn and we are making this strategic appointment to ensure that we find new opportunities in EMEA, while continuing to support our existing customers and sales channels. Our success in the USA is due to our philosophy of becoming an extension to our customer’s design process and offering a full and fast response in every area of our business. As our business continues to grow Rob will ensure EMEA customers have a senior voice within our company”
In his last three career moves Hill has been at senior management or director level and has overseen product marketing, product and business development, global marketing communications, strategic and major OEM sales, sales management and distribution channel management. He has first-hand experience of the rapidly changing high technology environments of North America, Asia, and Europe. Before leaving for the USA Hill held various positions with power conversion, networking and data acquisition companies and holds a BEng. in Electronic Engineering (BSEE).
